Teacher Directed Alberta Program of Studies
Alberta Education has launched a new online student learning tool.
This new online tool replaces the printed Curriculum Handbooks for Parents and Curriculum Summaries. Putting this information online means you can get it more easily and no longer need to request the books from the school or the government.

***For the 2013-14 school year, Supplemental Funding will no longer be offered for High School credits.
In order to continue to offer a higher level of instruction, we have been seeking ways in which we can continue to support the strong technology infrastructure we currently have in place. Because we rely on sophisticated technologies (hardware, software - licensing in particular, and 2 full time technical analysts who provide technical support) to an extent that far surpasses all other schools, our funding model needs to take into account costs that simply aren't incurred by other bricks and mortar schools, and/or boards who offer primarily paper based materials. Argyll is recognized as being a provider of the best online delivery model and a centre of excellence.
At the elementary and junior high levels, we reduce the supplemental funding by $300 to help offset some of these costs. This has not applied to high school students in the past.
The supplemental funding initially came into play when most of our students were using paper-based materials for instruction and learning. A large majority of our resources have since gone into the development of strong asynchronous online courses, complemented by live direct instruction through the virtual class. We believe, and know from the research, that our work is leading to higher levels of learning for our students, in addition to higher completion rates for our high school students.
It is our belief (and hope) that our families will continue to choose Argyll because of the high level of service and support we provide to our students and families. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and your family at Argyll.
